New Year Pressie to myself.
New Bike, same trusty plate. spreading the gospell around town.
Congrats! Very stealth, goes well with your 10's Monaco.
But what happened to the Gulf inspired bikes you were looking at?
I know- I'm a dark man at heart and your right the #5 Monaco will go well.
Bike came with Chrome pipes but I had it blacked out just like the 10' Monaco.
If I ever get a second bike, I might go down the Gulf Livery track for the days when I'm feeling especially McQueenish and I have the Gulf 50th win on my wrist.
Got a nasty obsession with cars as well as watches, currently have a number of drivers including an Alpina D3 Bi Turbo, Mercedes E280 AMG and this iconic beast, a Porsche 964.
Oof. More info and LOTS more photos, please
We'll be careful as gotta concentrate on my love for Tag watches on here, not cars, but here a couple more. Also, instagram.com/thenineleven will lead you to lots more...

Nah, especially in the case of Heuer nuts, it usually starts with cars
Who did the build? That interior looks lovely.
There's a 2010 FIAT500 lurking in the garage too, but that's just transport.
While everyone has such beautiful and exotic vehicles, it's time for a good laugh. Well... here's my daily driver. I purchased it new in December 1972, as cheap college transportation and it has been very reliable since. Maintenance, such as a tune-up, valve adjustment or timing belt replacement are quick and easy to do. Fortunately, all mechanical parts are still easily obtainable and quite inexpensive.
Hopefully, I never experience a rear-end collision!
Fantastic car, looks really good. Has it been your daily since you were at college, or did it take a vacation? How many miles are on it now?
That's the way to do it!
Mood for today......
That's truly insane. In the dictionary definition of the term.
Have you ever considered bringing it to that anti-Quail Lodge show that focuses on cheap or funky cars during Monterey Car Week? Would probably clean up there!
Thanks for the positive comments. My Pinto cost $2,300 US dollars new. It's a 1973 model and has a 2000cc engine, 4-speed manual transmission and front disc brakes. Back in the day, Pintos were everywhere in the states. In stock form, the 2 liter engine produced 85 HP from the crankshaft. After I had the engine rebuilt and included a few minor performance enhancements, it produced 88 HP on a chassis dyno, which is about 110 HP from the crankshaft. Still, very sedate (abysmal) power figures, but it keeps up with the traffic just fine.
Thanks. It was used as my primary work transportation for 35 years. It was on vacation for a few months, while I made some power enhancements and was repainted in the same color. It has accumulated over 300,000 miles.
Thanks, I never thought about that.
Two and four wheels.

Recently finished this 1979 Maico
I’m not sure I ever need another car after 6 months with this. Perfect daily driver, even in horrendous storms like we’ve had recently.
